The RTL Group is now investing into major US movies and will offer these title on the on-demand portal. Recent titles will include Olympus Has Fallen, The Expendables 2, The Three Musketeers 3D and Killing Them Softly.
Dutch movie productions will also be available, thanks to Filmventures, a joint venture between RTL Nederland and Dutch Filmworks, with titles such as Gooische Vrouwen and Leve Boerenliefde.
According to Arno Otto, managing director digital media at RTL, around 89% of all RTL investments into movies go to US productions.
